Brief Answer: Hydroxychloroquine tablets with neurotropic vitamins Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. I read that you are a patient of Sjogrens syndrome with Type 2 Diabetes and also your both breasts are removed for breast cancers and you are taking some medications. Sjogrens syndrome is an auto-immune disease involving exocrine glands and associated involvement of other systems. As you are Type 2 Diabetic, on drugs first thing to consider Neuropathy and if treated appropriately may resolve. Sometimes,Sjogrens patients may also have musculo-skeletal problems because the same auto-immunity may also involve that system,but there is no special prediliction to particular muscles,as you may be more using the particular limb. You may be having pain related to that particular limb and when I come across this situation in my clinical practice, I may prefer Hydroxychloroquine tablets with neurotropic vitamins but the Diabetes should be well controlled. Regards,
